This stepped roof line is typical of many of the Fife coast cottages. The fishing villages along this stretch of coast have a long history dating back as far as the 9th century or even further. Many of the present harbour cottages were built sometime in the 18th century. I already showed you a wider view of the cottages (click St Monans in the location).
When I noticed how the lamp was juxtaposed across the cottage I tried to be a bit artistic with my composition.
I can place in my mind exactly where this cottage is located, but the map view isn't very clear, so the marker is approximate.
Excellent eye, Kath, walking around with open eyes and the feeling for what works and what not. You indeed found an interesting way to work with this building. The lamp can be there but also not I think. The colors alone and the "steps" are another way but I probably want the lamp, you are right. They grey skies works very nicely, I wouold not want it any differently. Blue skies, ha, many times a little average.
Artistic worked! When I first saw the thumbnail I thought you had visited Santa Fe as this looks so much like some of the pueblo and Native American architecture. I do like the symplicty of the image, the almost equal portion of sky to building, and the single window give the scene depth. The street light was the insirational touch.
Bravo, excellent image.

It looks like the Adobe building from Santa Fe like Barbara's recent posts. I thought it was one of her from the thumb view :) Excellent shot Kath, composition worked and the inclusion of the lamp make all the difference, and I like how the steps are like stairs all the way to heaven. the last step is a big one :)
